The Ottawa Jr Senators are pleased to announce the signing of 2004-born forward Jérémy Thériault for the upcoming season.

“I am excited about it and can’t wait to get going,” said Thériault. “It’s a great organization. It’s been a winning organization for a long time especially the last few years. I think it is a great chance for me.”

At 20, Thériault will join the team in his last year of eligibility for junior hockey. He follows in the footsteps of Simon Isabelle who similarly spent multiple seasons in the QCHL before making the jump to the CCHL.

Thériault spent the last three seasons at Collège Lionel Groulx where he racked up 51 goals and 57 assists in 104 regular season games.

In the playoffs, where defensive play gets tighter and it becomes harder to score, Thériault was equally successful. In his three seasons playing for the Nordiques the team never failed to make the playoffs, and in a total of 12 playoff games the talented forward scored 13 points.

Thériault projects to be a high skill forward with the ability to score coming into the CCHL.  His vision and creative playmaking abilities will be an asset for a Jr Senators squad that needed a boost in the scoring department last season.

“It will be a bit of an adjustment, but I think when I get going with my teammates I can be just as much of a producer [in the CCHL] as I was this past season,” said Thériault.

Standing at 6’2 and weighing 209 pounds, Thériault is not only a scoring threat but a physical force on the ice.

“I know I’m a big guy,” said Thériault. “I like to check guys and use my body to get in front or win puck battles in the corner.”

When he’s not on the ice Thériault is a multisport athlete enjoying golf and basketball. He thinks its valuable to gain skills outside of hockey and make them part of his game on the ice when he can.

Like Isabelle before him, Thériault hopes a successful season in the CCHL could lead to opportunities in the NCAA or with USports.

However, he does not want to focus on the future too much understanding that his time in Ottawa will be about growing and learning how he can continue to improve his game.
